Direction of wind for forced convection

  1. Feb 23, 2014 #1
    I am wondering if in a case where the air velocity comes from one face as shown in the picture. Can I assume the whole area going along the channel will be subject to the same convective coefficient?

    So I'm not sure if it was clear....
    If the convective coefficient for 5m/s is 30. Do I use that for all faces of the channel, or just the front? (where the wind is coming from?
